Hair dye stains may seem stubborn, but all you need is a little careful rubbing with the right ingredients. Don’t give up—this is a minor setback to a more glamorous you.
- Soak a cotton ball with nail polish remover and dab this onto the hair dye stain. Rub gently and you should see the dye begin to lift off your skin. Isopropyl alcohol works in the same way.
- Use a non-gel toothpaste on an old toothbrush to scrub at the stain.
- Lather up some Lava soap with water and scrub at the stain. This super-scouring soap is good on many stubborn stains, and might just do the trick on hair coloring.
What removes permanent hair dye from skin?
- Remove the dye fast. The sooner you get the hair dye off your skin, the better. If the dye soaks into your skin, you’ll have to work twice as hard to get it off.
- Reach for vinegar, toothpaste, and hairspray. These are great home remedies for removing hair dye from skin, says Helene Sheptin, a Los Angeles-based celebrity hairstylist. These products work by sloughing off dead skin cells, allowing fresher skin to come through (similar to an exfoliant). Dip a cotton ball in any of these household items and rub against the stained area.
- Use baby oil if it’s a stubborn stain. Still can’t seem to get some hair dye off your skin? Rub baby oil across the stain before you go to sleep and wash it off the following morning. The baby oil breaks down the dye, making it easier to wash off. Put a towel over your pillow so the oil doesn’t stain your nice pillowcase.
